Tá forás ollmhór tagtha ar ghnólachtaí dhátheangacha i gcathair na Gaillimhe - bhí sé seo le tabhairt faoi deara go maith mar fuair an painéal moltóireachta an-deacair gearrliosta de chomhlachtaí a roghnú do Ghradam Sheosaimh Uí ógartaigh.

Tá réimse leathan de ghnólachtaí ar an ngearrliosta i mbliana a úsáideann an Ghaeilge go laethúil ina gcuid gnólachtaí nó eagraíochtaí.

Tá an-áthas ar Ghaillimh le Gaeilge an gearrliosta d'eagraíochtaí agus de chomhlachtaí atá roghnaithe don ghradam i mbliana a fhógairt. Seo a leanas an liosta: Sa chatagóir le 1-20 fostaithe: Coiste Cúrám Leanaí Chontae & Chathair na Gaillimhe, Cuntasóirí Cáirte Ryan McGinty agus Employ Ability Services Galway.

Sa chatagóir le 20+ fostaithe: Bácús Uí Ghríofa, Glenlo Abbey agus McCambridges. Fógróidh an tAire éamon ó Cuív T.D. buaiteoir Ghradam Sheosaimh Uí ógartaigh ag searmanas speisialta ar an Déardaoin an 25 Feabhra ag 6.30 i.n. sa Pavilion Suite, óstán Glenlo Abbey, Páirc na Sceach, Gaillimh.

Gheobhaidh na buaiteoirí pacáiste gnó iontach gur fiú €15,000 urraithe ag an Galway Advertiser, Snap Printing na Gaillimhe, Galway Bay FM, Aerfort na Gaillimhe, Cumann Tráchtála na Gaillimhe agus Gaillimh le Gaeilge.

I measc na nduaiseanna thuas, bronntar Séala Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh 'Q Marc' don Ghaeilge i gCathair na Gaillimhe ar an mbuaiteoir, mar aon le píosa dealbhóireachta álainn, deartha go speisialta ag an ealaíontóir cáiliúil Pádraic Reaney. Tá 14 treabh na Gaillimhe léirithe ar an bpíosa dealbhóireachta seo agus 'treabh an lae inniu' ag seasamh do bhuaiteoir Ghradam Sheosaimh Uí ógartaigh agus do na buaiteoirí amach anseo.

Ar an bpainéal moltóireachta i mbliana, tá Michelle Ní Chróinín, Oifigeach Preasa agus Eolais, Oé Gaillimh agus ball den bhfoireann a bhí mar bhuaiteoir iomlán Ghradam Bhliantúil Mhargaíochta Réigiún an Iarthair a eagraíonn Institiúid Mhargaíochta na héireann (MII), Paul Gill, óstán Bhaile Chláir na Gaillimhe agus Cathaoirleach Bhrainse na Gaillimhe de Chomhnaidhm óstáin na héireann agus Patricia Lohan ó Lohans, Beár agus Bialann, buaiteoir na bliana seo caite de Ghradam Sheosaimh Uí ógartaigh agus buaiteoir an chatagóir Gaeilge de Dhuaiseanna Bhliantúla Institiúid Mhargaíochta Réigiún an Iarthair a eagraíonn Institiúid Mhargaíochta na héireann (MII).

Ag labhairt di thar ceann na moltóirí, dúirt Michelle Ní Chróinín "Bhí caighdeán na n-ainmniúchán an-ard i mbliana, go háirithe ina measc siúd a chuir isteach ar an nGradam den chéad uair. Tá go leor díobh an-gníomhach i gcur chun cinn na Gaeilge ina gcuid gnólachtaí agus eagraíochtaí agus go deimhin, rinneadar a seacht míle dícheall. Molaimid go mór a gcuid iarrachtaí."

Ba mhaith le Gaillimh le Gaeilge ádh mór a ghuí ar na comhlachtaí ar fad atá ar an ngearrliosta ag an stáid seo.

Final preparations are currently under way for the award ceremony of Gradam Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh which is to take place tonight at the Glenlo Abbey Hotel at 6.30pm.

Six businesses and organisations were shortlisted for this prestigious award from a variety of sectors in Galway city, and tonight the winner of the prestigious award will be announced.

All six finalists will have the opportunity to showcase their bilingual endeavours and innovations in promoting Galway as a bilingual city. The award will feature two categories. In the category with fewer than 20 employees the businesses/organisations shortlisted are: EmployAbility Service Galway, Galway City and County Childcare Committee, and Ryan McGinty chartered accountants. In the category with more than 20 employees the businesses shortlisted are: Glenlo Abbey Hotel, Griffins Bakery, and McCambridges.

Minister Éamon Ó Cúiv will present the winner of each category with a miniature version of Gradam Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh, supported by Údarás na Gaeltachta, and the overall winner will receive for a year a specially commissioned sculpture designed by Pádraic Reaney depicting the 14 tribes of Galway resting over the River Corrib, with one extra tribe outstanding, who symbolises the winner of Gradam Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh, and future winners to come.

The winner will also receive a fantastic business package to the value of €15,000 sponsored by the Galway Advertiser, Galway Bay FM, Snap Printing, Galway Airport, and the Galway Chamber as well as ‘Séala Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh’ a Q Mark for the Irish language in Galway city. The ‘Séala’ was developed in association with Galway County and City Enterprise Board.

Speaking on behalf of the judging panel this year, Michelle Ní Chróinín, NUI Galway said: “Picking a winner for the Gradam Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh was extremely difficult this year as the standard was so high. The overall award will be given to the business that distinguishes itself among the other finalists as being outstanding in the promotion of the Irish language within their business and also in their contribution to the promotion of Galway as a bilingual city.”
